- Unproductive blogging weekend for me. It was a rough week getting our house from neglected craphole to a respectable party venue for my daughter’s Christening. We had like 40 people there. Today will be cleanup. One person that was not at our Christening was David Diehl. He hit a few parked cars and blew a .18 yesterday. If he is suspended by the league, I’m not sure how much it’ll hurt the Giants. Diehl was one of the worst starters in the league last season, so I’m not sure how much worse his likely replacement, James Brewer, can be. The bigger problem is that it would deplete the Giants’ depth at OT.
- Mike Jenkins is apparently going to report to mandatory camp this Tuesday. No surprise there. I’ll be reporting to Eagles and Giants camps this week.
- The Cowboys signed Pat McQuistan. The Cowboys drafted him in 2006, he rode the bench for a few years, bounced around a little, and now he’s back. That doesn’t matter all that much. What does matter, however, is that the bEast gains another NFL profile picture All-Star.
- Rich Tandler took a look at DeAngelo Hall getting work as the slot corner. That’s definitely something to keep an eye on in training camp and the preseason games. I don’t see it. Hall can’t even play the outside. I’m not sure what a switch to the slot is going to do for him.
- Also from Rich, a crazy observation on the number of starts they got on offense from players they drafted. Just 48. 48. I’ll repeat again… 48. That’s out of a possible 176! Some of that was due to injury, suspensions, etc, but that’s just mind-blowing. And we’re not talking rookies here. We’re talking about the number of Redskins draftees, period.
- Great look at Cowboys offensive line Bill Callahan’s rushing attack in New York with the Jets by Raf at Cowboys Nation. During the boredom of May and June, Raf has been doing film breakdowns and X’s and O’s posts like a madman. He’s worth a read just to get smarter about football even if you’re not a Cowboys fan.
